Found July 22, 2013 on 213 Miles From Shea:
The Braves are coming to Queens! After taking a weekend series from the Phillies, the Mets look to continue on their current roll. In case you missed it, the Mets started out stumbling after the break quickly falling behind the Phillies 11-0. Then a certain OF who really should be traded for prospects (you could say he’s the word) smacked a 3 run homer and the Mets outscored the Phils 8-2 for the rest of the game. The Mets then took the next game 5-4 and then yesterday 5-0. On another note, there is rain in the forecast tonight, which is nothing new. Whether it is in Queens or or Atlanta, when these two teams play it always seems to be raining. Today Dillon Gee takes on Julio Teheran. Dillon Gee is 7-7 with a 4.32 ERA this season while pitching 110.1 innings. He rebounded nicely from a 6.2 inning, 5 ER start with a 6.2 inning, 0 ER start. He has made one start against the Braves this year where he allowed 2 ER over 7.0 innings of work. The Braves have the following numbers against him: Heyward 8-19, HR Uggla 4-24, 2B, 3B McCann 3-16, 2B Freeman 5-16, 2B, HR J Upton 4-15, 2B, HR Johnson 3-7, 2B, HR Gattis 0-6 The Mets will get another look at Julio Teheran who is 7-5 over 18 starts with a 3.35 ERA while pitching 113.0 innings of work. He is coming off of a rough start where he allowed 5 ER over 5.1 innings, and with the exception of the start of the season, he generally does well the game after he stumbles. Earlier this year against the Mets he allowed 1 ER over 6.2 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Julio: Wright 1-5, HR Young 2-4 Buck 0-3 Byrd 0-2 Davis 1-2 Murphy 0-3 Lets Go Mets!

Mets Notes: Marcum Released Opening Up 40MR Spot, Feliciano Promoted To Triple-A

The Mets have announced that Shaun Marcum has been released. It was already known that Marcum had thrown his last pitch for the Mets after surgery to treat neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome in his right throwing shoulder last week. *** The important thing here for the Mets is that this now opens up a 40 Man Roster spot for the team and gives them some flexibility for future moves...

Braves Option Out Pastornicky, Recall Loe

The Atlanta Braves called up right-handed relief pitcher Kameron Loe from Triple-A Gwinnett and optioned out utility infielder Tyler Pastornicky. The 6’8″ 245 pound Loe will add depth and experience to one of the best bullpens in baseball.  Loe had a 4-2 record and 3.19 ERA at Gwinnett.  Loe pitched 42.1 innings and gave up 40 hits while striking out 24 and walking only...

Forget Schwinden, Mets Need To Go With Either Mejia or deGrom On Saturday

The Mets are reportedly considering promoting RHP Chris Schwinden from Triple-A Las Vegas to start against the Nationals on July 26. Yeah right… Needing a sixth starter this weekend due to a doubleheader, the Mets apparently do not want to promote RHP Rafael Montero and add him to the 40-man roster yet. We’ve written about that ad nauseum on this site and yes, I get that, but...

Pitchf/x Shows That At Worst, Wheeler Will Turn Out To Be A Useful Pitcher

So far, Zack Wheeler is walking a man every other inning and not striking out too many more, and he’s doing it while throwing little beside fastballs. That according to Tim Marchman of the Wall Street Journal who did some digging and found some historical comps for the Mets rookie righthander. Marchman found 29 comps and according to Pitchf/x data from FanGraphs, even if Wheeler...

Mr. Met gives high-fives, has no time for photos (GIF)

The New York Mets mascot, Mr. Met, appeared to give the cold shoulder to a woman looking to take a photo of him during the first inning of Sunday's game at Citi Field. Mr. Met seemed more than happy to give high-fives to fans he passed along the walkway. However, when the woman tapped him on the shoulder from behind and asked for a picture, he simply shrugged and kept walking...

Turner Activated, Burke Optioned To Triple-A, Germen Stays On

As expected, Greg Burke was optioned to Triple-A to make room for Justin Turner who was activated from the DL. Original Post 9:00 AM With the Mets all but set to activate Justin Turner from the disabled list today before they begin their series with the Atlanta Braves, many believed that reliever Gonzalez Germen would get the heave-ho. No way… Little was made of the rookie reliever...

Braves place Maholm on 15-day DL with bruised left wrist

NEW YORK -- Braves outfielder Jason Heyward is back in the lineup after missing six games with a right hamstring injury, and starting pitcher Paul Maholm has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a bruised left wrist. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has Heyward batting second and playing center field Monday night against the New York Mets. Usually a right fielder, Heyward...

Flexen, Diaz and Lawley Each Earn Player of the Week Honors

Congratulations to both Chris Flexen and Miller Diaz; they’ve been selected as the pitcher of the week in their respective leagues! Not to be outdone, Dustin Lawley was named the FSL offensive player of the week, as well. First, let’s start with the stellar week that Flexen had for the K-Mets.

The Binghamton Mets matched a season-high with 15 hits and Jenrry Mejia struck out eight over six innings in a 10-2 victory over the New Britain Rock Cats on Saturday night at New Britain Stadium.

Valdespin Drives In Five Tonight, Batting .474 Since Demotion

With Omar Quintanilla quickly sliding to his career norms, in other words Omar being Omar, perhaps it’s time to reconsider giving Ruben Tejada a pardon and allowing the 22-year old another shot at redemption. Quintanilla is now batting .143 (5-for-35) in his last ten games with 11 strikeouts. Overall, his average has dropped to .31 for the season, a shade above his career mark...

Mets 5, Phillies 4

Gonzalez Germen came out of the bullpen to bail out fellow rookie Zack Wheeler and help the New York Mets hold off the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 on Saturday.

Germen Heritage Day

Bobby Parnell was credited with the save in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Taliban. I wouldn't quite say that Parnell "earned" the save ... and not just because he gave us all a Francisco Rodriguez style heart attack in the ninth. Gonzalez Germen, yes that Gonzalez Germen, saved the Mets in the fifth when he took over for a laboring Zack Wheeler with the...

Braves-Mets Preview

The Atlanta Braves' beat-up starting outfield is scheduled to get back Jason Heyward, which could be perfect timing given his success against New York Mets starter Dillon Gee. Heyward likely will return from a six-game absence and try to help Atlanta avoid a fourth defeat in five games Monday night at Citi Field.
